An aggressive bird species has made its way to Auckland, and authorities want it gone.
The red-vented bulbul is thought to have made its way to our shores on a ship or a yacht.
It's known to attack crops and displace native species.
The bird has been spotted in three parts of the city - Manurewa, Henderson and the North Shore.
Anyone who spots a medium-sized bird with bright red feathers beneath the tail is asked to contact MPI Biosecurity.
